Stampin' Up! Zoo Babies in Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry

Stampin Up Zoo Babies

Totally love these cute little animals in the Stampin' Up! Zoo Babies stamp set! I have just stamped them directly onto Whisper White using Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry and Basic Black. Background cardstock is Crushed Curry.

I like how the black adds that extra contrast to the card, The yummy black chevron paper is one of the sheets from Modern Medley DSP pack. Love my great collection of Stampin' Up! punches too. Makes it so easy to add quick and easy accents to a card.

Again, my punches made this card super quick. Not sure if you can also see that I used the Chevron embossing folder for this card. If you want to add a little extra something to your punched or die cut images, using the paper piercing templates and paper piercing tool will help you do that. You get three templates with heaps of shapes in a pack for just $13.95. 

Here's a look again at some of the products I have used.

6x6" Stampin' Up! DSP Pack Share with Coordinating Ribbons

You all know how much I love to create with Stampin' Up! patterned papers! I find them a great way to create a WOW card easily because you know exactly which ink and cardstock is going to match the paper. We have some fresh and funky designs too!

November 2013 - Our Month of Fundraising Support for Ronald McDonald Houses

One of the things I love most about being a demonstrator is being involved with a company that has such a giving spirit. Stampin! Up! is just as much about serving others and giving to those in need as it is about Inspiring, Creating and Sharing. From Shelli and Sterling Gardner, right throughout their family, the Stampin' Up! staff, demonstrators and customers worldwide there is a strong commitment to helping others. It is such a fabulous company to be a part of.

In the lead up to Christmas, my Stampin' Up! Art With Heart team are joining in and will be putting a focus on raising money for both our local Ronald McDonald House (Monash, Melbourne) and Ronald McDonald House Charities for Australia and New Zealand. These houses do such a fabulous job in supporting the families of seriously ill children and their families, and it's such a great cause to support. The house we are supporting is one of two in Melbourne, and adjacent to the hospital where my boys were both born, so it has a special place in my heart.

RMH Monash
Here's what we have planned and how you can join in.

We have set up an online donation page which will be active until December 6th 2013. If you can spare a few dollars to support seriously ill children and their families, this is where you can donate and receive a tax invoice by email. We would really appreciate your support.

On Sunday 10th November, lots of the Demonstrators in our Art With Heart team are gathering together for an afternoon of Fun, Friendship and Fundraising. We will be collecting donations, raffling prizes and also making cards to donate to the house for families to use while they are staying in the house. We are really looking forward to getting together for this great cause! Stay tuned for lots of pictures on my blog next week.

We are also focusing on promoting the Stampin' Up! Ronald McDonald House Charity Stamp Set, Tag It  from which Stampin' Up! will be donating $3 from every set old to the Ronald McDonald Houses in Australia. By purchasing this set, you are supporting the houses. It's a very versatile set which can be used for many occasions. It also coordinates with the Chalk Talk Framelits.

You can purchase this stamp set by email, or online for $31.95 clear mount (available online here) or wood mount for $39.95 (available online here) plus $5.95 postage and handling. Here's what the stamp set looks like.
